OH SNAP! That is the hottest looking striped Camaro I have ever seen!!
That dealer did a master piece job! Stunning. It has me thinking about painting CGM stripes on my Camaro with your template.

Embalmer's post of $2000-$2500 would also change my mind back to no stripes, that's too much even for a master piece. $1000 I would do.

The Camaro has been looking wicked in any color combo, great photos to all the new owners and thanks for sharing!

p.s.- Though the stripes look fine to me not over the spoiler, I didn't realize how much more wicked they do look with them over the spoiler lip.

Looks great !! I just met with my painter today with pictures from Chicago of the stripes. When my car comes in, IBM, I will have gray stripes painted on as well. I will also wrap around the spoiler, but the stripes will finish like the Orange convetable concept car. Now I just need the car!!!!

I own a bodyshop, and I do the painting. $2500 might sound like a lot, but time is money, and in this biz, you get what you pay for...(unless you personally know someone). What I find amusing is that people always oooohh and aaaaaahhh over custom paintwork, but when they find out how much it costs, they freak out. Hell, the materials alone for that stripe job are close to $500 alone. Looks nice BTW.

WAY too high in my opinion. Asked him to call me if they decided to do it cheaper. It is a beautiful paint job though.
WAY too much for me.

It does look great though!

i talked with steve basil chevy here in buffalo where i ordered my car from. and he talked with his paint shop guy today and he said they could paint stripes like that on my IOM 2SS/RS for $1000.00. i was disappointed when i saw embalmers stripes were flat black. while they look great on his silver i would like it glossy on my IOM.

That looks great. I'm in the process of getting the stripes painted on my GT500 for the same reason. The vinyl stripes are crap.

I recommend to anyone that has the $$ to do it, get them painted on!

$2,500 for stripes is retarded and you know it. Anyone who wants a good idea on what it really costs to paint stripes on a car, just ask someone with a 67-73 Z/28.

Go over to Camaros.net and ask someone in the forums section. Every second guy over there has had rally stripes painted on their car.

dam i hate the color red but i must admit this car looks sick...i cant wait for my girl to get home so i can show her! her favorite color is red...also i like the sunroof on that car, and it was my reason of adding it on...because i want stripes and the black in the sunroof on the roof looks good with the stripes on the hood and trunk...i mean i wouldnt put stripes on the roof either way but it kinda looks like your missing something without them...but with the sunroof it adds some color up there and also gives a valid reason as to not have stripes on the roof. i just hope black stripes looks as good or almost as good with ABM as they do on your car...

Well, I'm going to have to get a quote before I get my heart set on it. $2,500 is a LOT for stripes going on just the hood and decklid. $500 for materials and $2,000 for prepping and painting, OUCH!!! I don't have even a remote clue as to how long it would take start to finish, but if it took 10 hours, that works out to $200/hr for labor. We're not talking a custom flame job here.

I was hoping closer to $1,000 for the stripes like the factory, well maybe over the spoiler too. I guess I just don't know crap about painting.

Reread HOW it was done.
I have stripes on my 73, but they do not lay flat to the touch. That is where you pay for the qaulity.
The way they did it, is costlier, they could have just sprayed over the top of the clear coat but didn't.

Everyone with a '69 Z/28 gets it done that way. So they clear and cut and polish after - it's still a $1,500 dollar job.

I've personally painted chevelle stripes onto an S-10 with the radar blue metallic and pearl white stripes. 2g's for stripes is obsurd... if the paint is $500.00 Taping off the stripes, if you know what you're doing, takes 2hrs +/- hell the base color is already down... guns these days cover the entire stripe with 1 pass. so it takes an extra hour or so to color sand before you shoot the clear.... what the heck did they do, 2000 grit the entire hood, top of the fenders, facia, trunk and deck lid then reclear it?

Yeah it looks nice, but for 2G it would be nice to know what they did, i mean black isn't nearly as expensive as a radar blue met. or some custom tint coat cherry, etc.

(not hating, I'm saying they did a lot more than lay down some color, color sand, and cleared it, they probably 2000 gritted the entire area, couple coats of clear, buffed, etc)

Well, here is what we did. Took hood and deck lid off car, color sanded both, spent two days taping, untaping, taping,ets. Remember there are no templates available yet. The front was pretty straight forward, however, the rear was a different story. Several adaptations of what we thought we close to factory just didn't seem right. All of this was done at time and materials. I think the factory's are too narrow and we wanted pretty much the same width front to rear. I know I paid too much for factory stripes, but that's not what we got. These are Very well done under clearcoat, color sanded, buffed and very custom. You only get what you pay for. I like the factory stripe, GM did a good job on them. These, I think are much better, and I have the F-bodfather's blessings, as well as others.

I'd like to see them in person, lol. Yeah i'm not disputing... I had no templates for my stripes either. We couldn't put real chevelle stripes on an s-10, i'll have to upload some photos.... but we took the concept and made it proportional to the vehicle, it was pretty quick really. I think its easier when you're on primer and not on a brand new 36,000 car too... lol. Looks great. Thats how they should be done at the factory in my opinion.

Correct. But I guess Hylton knows more than me and my 24+ years of autobody experience.

I didn't say you didn't know how to do the work. Just said you charge too much.

If I charge "too much" that is your opinion. If I "charge too much", I guess I would lose customers eventually and be out of business. Considering these facts, I am still here since 1984. Hmmmmmm.......I guess the charge is like this old saying: The quality of work done for nothing is usually equal to the fee." If you really feel it's too expensive, I would suggest you don't have it done. Especially to a brand-new 35K automobile. Of course, you could always get out your masking tape and Krylon rattle-can and do it yourself....what do I care?
